When I made the transition from side-hustle to full-time entrepreneur (back in 2013), Facebook Menlo Park was trying to recruit me for the ultimate data position in Silicon Valley. It was a clear test of my resolve. Without a second thought, I declined those interview requests and moved to Chiang Mai, Thailand, where I lived off $600/month in order to bootstrap my business from near-scratch.
This business is now a multi-six figure earner for me, I’m fully supported with an incredible team, and we have a thriving online community of 650k tech professionals. To date, I’ve educated over 1 Million data professionals on topics related to AI, as well as on data leadership and entrepreneurship.
Oh, and I’ve been an expat, working remotely for the last 7 years. While sometimes I’m running my business from my luxury villa in the Gulf of Thailand, other times I’m running it from the road while I travel the world with my loving husband +daughter in toe.
